Well the company switched to iPhone, and i have this blackberry which has no service. In the past I have enjoyed using it for GPS tracking while backpacking etc. I think it will still work great for that, except I can't download new maps. I have confirmed the GPS works. WIFI says it's connected but I can't get internet or any data in any app that I can tell. In another discussion on this site a fix was recommended which seems to depend on my registering the wifi service with the service provider, which I have none.
Any suggestions to get the wifi going on this device? i had thought it was working prior to losing cell service but I can't be sure.

The menus on my phone are updated from the ones you described, but I followed along OK. However, when I got to the restore step, it did not allow me to select the service book. It said, "dimmed entries are read-only data types and cannot be restored."

OK - I tried again. The first time my phone rebooted randomly in the middle of the process so that's why I couldn't restore . Now I was able to complete the procedure as you outlined. I am still not connecting - I am getting the error "Unable to find the requested server" in the browser when I try to connect to Google. I can't remember what the error was previously, but this is different, anyway. Perhaps we are on the right track.

I'm not sure how the hotspot would help, since I can't connect to the outside. What am I missing?
Meanwhile, I'm about to give up, but in case you or someone can glean something from this, here is the output from a diagnostic I found.

You must select "Hotspot Browser" in the dropdown menu of Browser Cofiguration. This setting directs the Browser to utilize WIFI connection as opposed to WAN.
